The Final Submission Deadline for PriSecCSN'12 is Approaching! -- 10 July, 2012.

Call for papers: The 2012 International Symposium on Privacy and Security in Cloud and Social Networks (PriSecCSN 2012), 1-3 Nov. 2012, Xiangtan, China.

The website is:

Important dates:
Deadline for Paper Submission:   Extended to July 10, 2012 (firm)
Notification of Acceptance:                            July 30, 2012
Camera Ready Copies:                                 August 10, 2012

Submission site and requirements: Please submit your paper(s) in PDF file.

Papers should be limited up to 8 pages in IEEE CS format. The template files for LATEX or WORD can be downloaded from the symposium website. All papers will be peer reviewed by two or three pc members. Submitting a paper to the symposium means that if the paper is accepted, at least one author should register to CGC2012 and attend the conference to present the paper.

All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society (EI indexed). Selected papers will be invited to special issues of CGC2012 in Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience, Future Generation Computer Systems and International Journal of High Performance Computing Applications.

Social network analysis and cloud computing are two of the most exciting new trends in the recent developments of information technology. As the new generation computing paradigm, cloud enables computing resources to be provided as IT services in a pay-as-you-go fashion with high efficiency and effectiveness. With the popularity of social software as well as the fast development of cloud and other high-performance computing infrastructures, the outcome of social network analysis is becoming more and more attractive. However, information privacy and security issues are major challenges in both these areas. This symposium aims at providing a forum for researchers, practitioners and developers from different background areas such as distributed computing, social computing, information security and privacy protection areas to exchange the latest experience, research ideas and synergic research and development on fundamental issues and applications about security and privacy issues in cloud environments and social networks. The symposium solicits high quality research results in all related areas.

The objective of this symposium is to invite authors to submit original manuscripts that demonstrate and explore current advances in all aspects of security and privacy in cloud
computing environments. The symposium solicits novel papers on a broad range of topics, including but not limited to:

Security and privacy in Big Data management
Application of modern cryptography in cloud and social networks
Emerging threats in cloud-based services
Multi-tenancy related security/privacy issues
Secure virtualisation mechanisms
Vulnerabilities in cloud infrastructure
Vulnerabilities in MapReduce
Security modelling and threats in cloud computing
Security/privacy in hybrid cloud
Auditing in cloud computing
Access control in cloud computing
Secure Job deployment and scheduling
Secure resource allocation and indexing
